Dear Brothers and Sisters and Comrades
As we move now from a CB4 era into uncharted waters, let us always remember our place inside the American Sporting Universe. Never has a team or a fan base been so abandoned by the forces of a select group of pricely, pampered princesses. But fear not, for the daybreak will come and the sun shall shine once more in T.O. and the whole of Canadian and American Sport (yes i' m talking to you Cavs).
I have a simple message, UNITE NOW or BE TORNED APART AGAIN LATER. I am a big Liverpool FC supporter, have been for 10 years (since the 13th birthday when i saw Liverpool beat Man United). We (Reds Fans) are and have been united through heartache and pain. We have lost players, suffered through American business interests, we have seen our friends and family KILLED (seriously look up Liverpool FC riot, if you don't believe me). Yet have our culture and our pride in place. Liverpool lives, and the Raps will live too.
I say, now we have to unite and put up a united front. Now with a new era in TO RAPS history, we can create a new culture for supporters and stand together against teams on the court. The best way is to have a way of life in Rap land. This website, is a great example of that. i think other ways is to have things like chants, anthems, songs etc at games. As a Liverpool Supporter my go-to song in hard times is "You'll Never Walk Alone" (Liverpool fans sing this every game, before/after games, at rallies and so on)

PASSION, TORONTO PASSION, RAPS PASSION,
If i had a choice of hymns of songs for an unoffical/offical anthem they may include:
- Forever Young (Bob Dylan) = Great Song, Great and easy to sing
- Wavin' Flag (K'naan) = Canadian Song at Vancouver Games
- You'll Never Walk Alone = Get me (us) through some terrible moments
- Alive (Pearl Jam) = Great Chours
- Born in The USA (Bruce Springsteen) = LOL kidding, but that feeling
Please add more (Please no Queen)
All of this is an attempt to instill a passion in Rap Fans that has been missing. Real Passion. This will take time I know, and I know how lackluster North American Sport Fans are. But here we can show Pride and Honour and Commitment.
I hope to have a movement going by the start of this season, and many seasons to come
Please Comment and post new ideas for anthems or chants or hymns
Peace and Love Comrades
